my last couple of fishing sessions in dorset have been blighted by dirty/ cloudy water with little bits of weed - courtesy of the preceding stormy weather i guess. i guess it can get bad off the dorset coast due to the shales and clay beds in the cliffs.

what lures do people use when the water is cloudy?

does colour really matter? i guess a lure with a lot of movement/ vibration or a rattle is good.

i tried a zonk yesterday and the usual feed shallo and fs + in silver/pink stripe and clear as well as a maria chase bw holo silver, grey/ silver patchinko.

i thought the zonk would be useful as it's got a lot of movement/ vibration - its pearl white.

any pointers gratefully received....

Hey Rich,

You'll probably get 10 different answers mate. But personally speaking I use my bigger, darker coloured lures with loud as possible rattles and work them really slow with bigger than normal twitchers to get the most noise out of the rattles.

I've even thought of dunking the lures in the most stinky "fishy" concoction I can muster every few casts. But I'm not quite that sad yet. Give it time though ;o)

fish shallow, really close in, over and around dense weedy cover.
we'll be practicing it tomorrow I think. Wind and swell humping.

Hi Burko
For me i prefer colour in the water i always catch more when the sea is a milky colour. This usually is after a good on shore blow which stirs the bottom up.
Lure colour for me is sandeel patterns or orange and gold.

Caught on red/orange/gold komomo 125 sf in coloured water the other day. Think it was at the mark in your avatar (Gypsy lane Lepe?). But over clean ground big paddle tail sp's fished nice and slow.
